The Who at The Hydro

Earlier this year, when the tickets originally went on sale for the Who, kicking off their 50th anniversary tour at The Hydro, I scoffed at the price and made my peace with the fact I’d probably never get to see them live.

I’m not overly keen on the heavy use of the fast-cut in Moby’s new video for the song Alice, but I do like the song.

The new album, entitled Last Night, is due out at the end of March in the UK and on the strength of Alice I’ll most likely be picking it up. 🙂
